Babymoons! A New Travel Trend Is Born

This babymoon includes three nights in one of the inn's oversized bedrooms featuring cozy four-poster beds and fireplaces. Mom gets a jar of pickles when she checks in, dad gets a cigar and cognac. If that doesn't seem quite fair, mom also gets a cuddly teddy bear along with a baby backpack full of information about infant care.

The spoiling continues with mom getting extra pillows to make sure she sleeps in style along with ice cream and a slice of the inn's famous coconut cake. Also on the agenda, a list of movies you can watch in your room, massages for mom and dad and a guided carriage ride through historic Charleston. For more: www.relaischateaux.com.
